I have pneumonia and I am taking levofloxacin 500 mg for 10 days. I am a healthy 57 yr old woman. Is this medication normally prescribed? I have started the medication as of yesterday with no side effects, but the possible side effects are freaking me out with the possible tendon ruptures even after 6 months from using this drug.
